Kayaking fjords in Norway- Sept.2019


I am in the process to plan a trip to Norway with my 3 best friends. We will arrive in Oslo September 14th and from there we want to kayak the fjords. A few places in mind are Voss, eggum, flam, ulvik. My few question are:

Which of the many places in Norway would you recommend to go kayaking through the fjords?
Is it worth paying for a guided kayak tour through the fjords? If so, which entity would you suggest to book?
We are looking at a ~5 hour long trip

I have no idea about kayaking in Norway. Just two thoughts.

Voss is not located at a fjord, "only" at a lake. Eggum is on Lofoten (hug distance) and at open sea. In September I would definitely recommend to be aware of very strong and gusty weather. It can also be cold.

In general September is late for Norway. Maybe think about a different date of travel for your purpose. Alternative: Mid of September is start of season for Northern Light watching.
